World T’ai Chi & Qigong Day is a global health and healing event held throughout the world. It begins in New Zealand and spreads from time zone to time zone across the earth, throughout more than 60 countries and across 6 continents. Organizers hope this healing wave will foster and promote calm and wellness worldwide. Tai Chi and Qigong are sometimes referred to as Chinese Yoga, dating back thousands of years in ancient China and are growing in popularity worldwide.
“Tai chi is often described as meditation in motion, but it might well be called “medication in motion.” according to the Harvard Women’s Health Watch. Researchers at Harvard found growing evidence that this mind-body practice, which originated in China as a martial art, has value in treating or preventing many health problems such as high blood pressure and heart disease. Combined with standard treatment, tai chi appears to be helpful for several medical conditions. For example: arthritis, low bone density, breast cancer, heart disease, hypertension, Parkinson’s disease, sleep problems, and stroke.
Dr. Oz, Oprah’s favorite MD, was asked out of all the health practices that one could do, what was the one practice that he would choose and recommend people practice to stay healthy. His response: “If you want to be healthy and live to 100, do Qigong.” He added that Qigong reverses the aging process.
